The PWA Aloha Classic Presented by JP-Australia – Day 6
Pressure builds as forecast narrows down competition to the final 2 days of the 2006 tour
Another beautiful, scorching, light wind day at Ho’okipa has left all eyes on weather forecasts for the remaining 2 days of this years PWA Wave Tour Final. After several days of light winds, the varied weather forecasts have now started to converge predicting 15 knot East to Northeast winds for the final 2 days of the contest and giving the green light for action.
When battle commences tomorrow, Kevin Pritchard (Starboard / MauiSails) will have his work cut out to defend his championship lead ahead of Kauli Seadi (Quatro / Naish) and Josh Angulo, as well as the myriad of local and international talent lined up to try and claim Ho’okipa gold.
Among the women, the dominant Daida Moreno (Mistral / North Sails) will not only have to overcome her sister Iballa (Mistral / North Sails) and Karin Jaggi (F2 / North Sails), but also past Ho’okipa winners such as Jennifer Henderson (Starboard) and Motoko Sato (Quatro) who will offer a strong challenge to the tour regulars.
With winds already starting to increase at the end of today, the show will start up early at 09.00 tomorrow, so be sure to stay tuned to www.pwaworldtour.com for all the latest news as it happens.
